The Southern African Association for the Conference Industry (SAACI) organised the ‘Proof of concept’ event on the behalf of the South African Events Council. The hybrid event took place in five cities across South Africa and online on Wednesday, 22 July 2020. The idea was to prove the efficacy of the hybrid event concept and show the industry that events can be held during lockdown – safely, and effectively.
